OAS Anticipates a Drastic Rise in Use of Edge Computing in 2019

Open Automation Software, a globally-recognized leader in industrial automation and IoT technology, has anticipated that Edge Computing will drive change in 2019. OAS believes that this year also, the edge is going to be the topmost data center trends, just like the previous year. The edge computing was a hot topic throughout 2018 and as we move into 2019 its adoption is going to further rise.

Open Automation Software (OAS) has gained a reputation for providing fast, easy, and secure networking solutions to move any data type from one location to another. The company believes that now more and more companies are realizing the needs of edge computing on their technology road map. In fact, analysts have also forecasted that the edge computing market size is expected to value at $3.24 billion (USD) by 2025.

According to the OAS system developer, the adoption of edge computing will rise particularly in those industries where cloud connectivity has restrictions, such as shipping and logistics. The technology will reduce data transfers volumes and cloud dependencies. Also, edge computing will significantly affect those industries where immediate action is needed based on complex real-time data analysis. It will make devices more powerful by enabling local data processing and AI capabilities.

“If we look at the industrial sector of IoT, the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is growing at a rapid pace. In industries like manufacturing, energy, and transportation, IIoT connects machines and sensors to improve connectivity, efficiency, scalability, cost-efficiency, and data speed,” says the company’s official source.

Over the past several years, most of the businesses were relying on Cloud service for their operations as around 95% of enterprise businesses were using some form of cloud computing. Though cloud computing is helpful in offering flexibility and cost-efficiency, it has some limitations too. To overcome those limitations, edge computing proves more helpful. Edge computing moves data analysis and services away from a centralized server and enables analysis to occur at the source of data collection.

Unlike clouds, edge computing allows data produced by the internet of things (IoT) devices to be processed closer to where it is created. This helps organizations in analyzing important data in near real-time. Since IIoT and edge computing is transforming industrial operations, it going to be one of the topmost trends of 2019.
